However, the effective dose, measured in miliSieverts (mSv), takes into account the radiosensitivity
of each organ.
The aim of our work is to study in vitro seeds radiosensitivity
from three Algerian datura species: Datura stramonium, Datura Datula, Datura inoxia.
Chapters discuss assessment of genetic damage associated with exposure to selenium; prediction of genotoxicities; research problems in the modification of chemical mutagenesis; air pollution, toxicity, and lung cancer; human radiosensitivity
; the genotoxicity of herbicides to freshwater microalgae and dental compounds to humans; and other topics.
Washington, Mar 9 (ANI): Researchers at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan, have suggested that during radiation therapy treatments prostate-specific dietary supplements should not be taken as they increase the radiosensitivity
of normal prostate cell lines, leading to normal tissue complications.
Those free radicals can also initiate the apoptotic cascade and apoptotic death of cells which has been considered an indicator of radiosensitivity
Response of human tumor cells of varying radiosensitivity
and radiocurability to fractionated irradiation.
With this in mind, scientists at Texas A&M University attempted to quantify the effect of MAP on the radiosensitivity
of Listeria when irradiating baby spinach.
Conversely, inhibiting P13K/AKT results in greater radiosensitivity
. AKT is therefore a potential therapeutic target to increase radiosensitivity
Evaluation of a tetrazolium-based semiautomated colorimetric assay: assessment of radiosensitivity
. Cancer Res.
is determined by the function of a given organ in the body, the rate at which its cells mature and the inherent sensitivity of its cell type to radiation.
Human papillomavirus E6 and E7 oncoproteins alter cell cycle progression but not radiosensitivity
of carcinoma cells treated with low-dose-rate radiation.
Moreover, lymphocytes infiltrating the retrobulbar tissues showed a high radiosensitivity
. RT can also reduce glycosaminoglycan production by orbital fibroblasts.
